Item Description...
Overview
A serious, scene by scene, in-depth theological study of the Mel Gibson film The Passion Of The Christ, Dr. Miller's analysis not only focuses on the more obvious Marian, Eucharistic and Incarnational themes, but she also discusses and explains the more difficult images and gestures of the movie such as the demon child held by Satan, the donkey carcass behind Judas, the raven above the thief's cross, etc. Written in a very reader-friendly style, the book also discusses the film's depiction of the Jews and Romans from a theological and cultural perspective and examines the various sources of The Passion, notably the Dolorous Passion Of Our Lord Jesus Christ by Anne Catherine Emmerich. One chapter examines how the movie has changed people's lives and an Appendix compares The Passion Of The Christ to other movies about the life of Jesus.

Excellent study source  Jan 9, 2007
This book is clear and very helpful in understanding the nuances in this very powerful film. We will use it during Lent as a basis to study the film in an Anglican church.
 
Miller's Book Makes Contribution to Understanding the Gibson Movie  Nov 4, 2005
Miler's book is extremely insightful on the meaning of the Gibson film. Especially helpful is Miller's commentary on the role of Mary in the life of Christ and how Mary is Christ's partner in his work of salvation. Miller points out that the key to the film is found in Genesis 3:15, that Eve will be the mother of the future Offspring who will crush the head of the serpent and that the Woman and the serpent are enemies in the drama of salvation. This exegetical key explains why Mary is shown in the film as the advocate of Christ's mission in contrast to Satan who attempts to thwart Christ's mission and demoralize him.
Miller provides a strong theology of the incarnational aspects of the film and takes the reader through the many images in the film that support the Christian doctrine that indeed God became man and that his suffering is real as an act of supreme love. She has a good sense of the relation between the divinity and humanity in Christ as expressed in the movie.
Finally this book offers a solid explanation why the Gibson movie is not anti-semitic primarily through an examination of the chief source of the Gibson movie, the writings of German mystic Anne Catherine Emmerich. Miller explains how the film is faithful to the New Testament presentation of the relationship between Jesus and the Jewish leaders and how this relationship forms an essential aspect of Christ's personal life and passion.
Miller's book is theologically provocative and spiritually very stimulating. After reading this book one will see the Gibson movie on a completely different level.
 
Failing to come to grips with the film's failures  Oct 29, 2005
In attempting to answer critics of the film, Miller unfortunately chooses to side-step the two major issues raised by Christian critics. Although citing Philip A. Cunningham's trenchent critique of the movie, Miller fails to identify--let alone answer--Cunningham's major point, that the film's selection and arrangement of both scriptural and traditional material magnify the guilt of Jews for Christ's death far beyond the New Testament witness. The even more basic problem of the film's presentation of a Jesus who is not fully human (because he survives a scourging that would have killed any human being) is dismissed by Miller with her contention that "The excessive violence of the movie points to the divine nature of the victim. It illustrates Jesus' divinity" (page 38). Yet the constant teaching of the Church is that Christ suffered in His Person and through His human nature, not through His divine nature. Indeed, the proposition that He suffered in His divine nature was explicitly condemned by the Council of Chalcedon in 451 A.D. Miller's Christology appears, sadly, to be as confused as the film's on this crucial matter.
 
A Wonderful Book--Theologically Rich--The FULL Package  Mar 21, 2005
The Theology of The Passion of the Christ is a great aid to anyone who wants to penetrate the theological depths of the Gibson movie. And Miller's insights here are deep. Her commentary on the role of Mary in the movie is most helpful---providing a real insight into Mary's role in the accomplishment of Christ redemptive mission. Miller helps viewers understand many of the diffucult and disturbing images of the film--i.e. the wiping up of Jesus' blood with the linens, the demon child, the carcass behind Judas, the black bird above the thief's cross. The book explains the role of blood sand violence in the film, the role of the Jews, the Roman soldiers, Veronica and Simon of Cyrene.
This book helped me see the movie in a whole new way. I especially appreciated the author's discussion of how this movie is not anti-semitic contrary to all the critics. The book also explains reactions to the movie--both pro and con and provides a great and very interesting comparison of The Passion to other movies about Christ. In addition, the book itself is great spiritual reading. It really is the full package on this movie. Good job!
 
A Terrible Book...Faithful Catholics Beware  Mar 20, 2005
This is a terrible book whose only merit lies in the fact that its author (approvingly) exposes the main faults and flaws of Gibson's distorted theology. What a shame to see it endorsed by Cardinal George and Benedict Groeschel! Not once does Miller mention official Catholic teaching on the proper way to portray the Passion story, but instead treats us to a gushing, inconsistent and deceptive promotional tool. Faithful Catholics beware...

Anyone interested in partaking of the magnificent fruit of many years of painstaking research and deep spiritual searching about Christian-Jewish relations would do far better to read "The Bible,the Jews and the Death of Jesus." Even though our bishops were apparently too overawed by Mel Gibson's star "power" to confirm the Catholic people in a true, authoritative sense of how this precious story is to be portrayed, there's a great deal of excellent material out there that does just that. Forget Miller's book. It does not represent the teaching of the Church (nor does the Gibson film). Honor Christ by learning the truth.
